Neil Broadley, Global Marketing Manager at HMD, speaking with a Russian publication said that they are not looking to compete with Samsung or Apple. Instead, they are looking to “focus on what will be best for users.”

HMD officials also said that they’re working on another handset with a larger display, which is expected “to meet the needs of absolutely all users.” Nevertheless, they did not reveal the news on when they’re planning to launch the smartphone.
